This theatre was built in the 1920s and was called the West. It was later merged into the Colonial Theatre next door to become the West Cinema 1&2.

An article in the 12/21/1972 edition of the Galesburg Register-Mail reports that this and the Orpheum would become property of Kerasotes on 12/28/1972.
